Police warn about fake Spurs merchandise

Posted: Updated:
San Antonio, TX -  Now that the NBA has shifted it's focus from the Sterling saga to the NBA finals, a new controversy is facing the league.     

Although business is booming in the Alamo city with the Spurs advancing to the NBA finals once again, an illegal business is now trying to take center stage. The NBA says for more than 2 decades they have taken millions of counterfeit items off the streets and they plan to continue going after criminals now during this year's finals.  
Officials with the league say they are not going after people buying counterfeit products, but instead teaming up with federal and local law enforcement to bust anyone selling fake Spurs gear.

The NBA says over the past 20 years authorities has seized millions of counterfeit items with a value in the hundreds of millions of dollars, saying they do know where to find these fake goods. Besides looking for the NBA hologram sticker, they say you want to check the tag to make sure its made by an NBA approved company, but they also recommend your best bet is to shop at major retailers or approved websites.
